Graphic details made public Wednesday by the Riley County District Court Clerk’s office, allege 130 counts of sexual abuse perpetrated by Manhattan restaurant owner Robert Iacobellis against three underage victims.
Iacobellis was initially charged with one count of rape and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child in three separate incidents involving young girls. An amended complaint filed this week saw that number skyrocket, adding 127 new charges. All told, Iacobellis faces one count of rape, three counts of aggravated criminal sodomy, one count of aggravated indecent solicitation and 124 counts of aggravated indecent liberties.

It states she was raped sometime between August 2012 and May 2013, when she was either 9 or 10 years old. The complaint also alleges three charges of aggravated criminal sodomy, occurring on three separate occasions. Numerous other counts of aggravated indecent liberties and aggravated indecent solicitation are also alleged to have continued between January 2012 and December 2018.
